Men's Basketball - Sat, Jan. 14, 2012
Lindsey Wilson's Chase Spreen hit a three-quarter court
three-pointer at the buzzer to hand No. 5 Georgetown College its first
Mid-South Conference loss.
The No. 14 Blue Raiders (13-4, 5-1) battled back from a
15-point halftime deficit to win 79-78 over the Tigers (15-3, 6-1) Saturday in
Columbia. Georgetown had a chance with two seconds left to make it a four-point
game, but Garel Craig missed both free throws and Spreen capitalized. The game's
leading scorer grabbed the rebound and threw up the shot for the victory.
Spreen finished with 23 points and also led LWC with 19
rebounds. Maurice Pearson had 21 points to lead GC. Tyrone Shelley had seven
rebounds to lead the Tigers. Aaron Morris finished with 12 points, Shelley 11
and Allan Thomas 10 to round out the double-figure scorers for Georgetown.
The line was the nemesis for GC all day as the team
missed 11, 15-of-26, while LWC went 25-of-30.
Kalen Kimberland had 17 points and Wesley Hanspard 16 for
all the Lindsey double-figure scorers.
The Tigers return home to host University of Rio Grande
team Thursday. Tip is set for 8 pm. They will then play West Virginia Tech,
which is not a conference game this year, but the Golden Bears have been piling
up the wins against their former MSC foes. WVT beat University of Pikeville
Saturday. Tip for that game is set for 4 pm.
